Whilst still a decade away from having to decide whether to send herself a birthday card or not, Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday celebrations are sure to be a highlight of 2016.
The day itself is April 21st but it will be celebrated officially in May with events to mark the occasion continuing into June too, further continuing the celebrations marking the Queen becoming our longest-reigning monarch after more than 63 years in 2015.
There’s sure to be plenty of pageantry to excite your children and, with a few clicks on the print button, there’s plenty of ways to capture that enthusiasm with activities at home.
Activity Village have previously offered plenty of resources for royal fans but have also put together “some lovely new resources and ideas for your own celebrations” in honour of the milestone occasion.
“We’ve also pulled in every resource that we thank might help you celebrate the Queen’s life – the Royal palaces, Westminster Cathedral (where she was crowned), the Queen’s Guard, the National Anthem and, of course, her favourite pets!”
Colouring pages, posters, tracing pages, writing pages, learn to draw, acrostic poem outlines, mazes, worksheets, birthday cards and flag printables are just some of what’s ready to download from its website.
Twinkl also has its own Queen Elizabeth’s 90th Birthday Resource Pack available to download containing a design an invitation, role play menu, name cards, food labels, family tree matching photo activity, the Queen’s life zig zag timeline, page borders, bunting, cone characters and more. And how about Pin the Tail on the Corgi as a party activity?!
More bunting and the chance to design the Queen’s birthday outfit can be found in Primary Treasure Chest’s teaching resources.
If the excitement leaves you with little ones who all want to be birthday queens too then take a look at Betsy Beier’s Free Printable Birthday Queen Crown on B.Nute Productions – “filled with vintage royal charm” she designed it in honour of her own birthday girl “because, a birthday girl’s special day isn’t complete without a little royal treatment!”
Kiki Comin also recognises the importance of being able to “outfit your queens and kings in a fun and unique way” and includes Printable Kings and Queens crown that you can decorate yourself on Crafting Chicks.
And, if your child is still searching for their own particular style, First Palette offer a further nine printable crown templates.
Happy birthday your majesty!
